Madden’s video game wasnt great for the U.S. as it helped establish a plantation cosplay



quote:

I have lots of opinions on John Madden. The creation of the Madden video game was not a great development for the U.S. It further glamorized violence and dehumanized Black athletes, helping to establish plantation cosplay that has grown worse in the era of fantasy football.


quote:

The video game distanced the reality of the violent sport from fans, and transformed human behaviors into artificial numbers and simulations. It glamorized athletes, using their name for profits while encouraging fans to disregard the humanity. Madden built a digital plantation.


quote:

At every point in his career -- coach, announcer, video game producer -- Madden profited off of Black athletic labor and glamorized the violence inherent in the game. He became ubiquitous and grew the NFL into the most popular game, and hastened the development of esports.


quote:

Sure, there is a lot of significance to his life and his impact. But it's pretty clear most of his accomplishments were not beneficial or healthy for athletes, particular non-white athletes. John Madden made a life in football, one of the most violent and exploitative sports.


quote:

When your entire life is based on expanding and profiting off of one the of most violent and exploitative games, veneration is not exactly something that you deserve.

Should we be throwing Bill Walsh in the same category? He had a run of college football games from EA Sports.

Boy it'd be fun to bounce that cocksucker's head off the pavement like a basketball a few times.

These poor football players, driving their sports cars, impregnating women at a pace never before observed by modern man. Won't someone think of the poor sports stars? How much more can we dehumanize them...should we pay them more? Heavy is the head, that carries the burden of being vastly overpaid. I pray our children will right this wrong...and end the modern slavery that is...the NFL.

Now somebody dehumanize this Doctor by giving him an ultimate wedgie. fricking nerd.

I bet the people that have to be in his orbit hate his fricking guts. They would have to be, of course, normal people. He’s got his brain dead, incapable of rational thought, groupies I’m sure. Another fricking oxygen thief taking up space on the planet.

Hey man, why didn’t you publish this while CJM was alive? The game’s been out for 30 years

Could it be to capitalize on someone else’s tragedy while using woke buzzwords (“plantation”) and trending Twitter tags (#JohnMadden) because otherwise no one would listen to you?

Please Andrew, and I say this sincerely...
